    Here is his pedigree
    Native Hero Thoroughbred
    *Note some of these photos are when I was purchasing him he has gain so much weigh since then!



    What do you think he be good for? I want to learn dressage so we are working on stretching his neck with some exercises and bending.
    He has a lovely headset at the canter (which I can't believe we are doing already) but everything else he is high headed.

    He is 15.2 I believe but not sure I'm 5'4..anywho I would love to jump him also but he is older (13) and has never been ridden after he raced which surprises me because he listens so well.

    Thanks!!

    He is cute!!! From the first pictures I would say his neck dips, but the new pics you have of him, his neck is not as bad, gained that weight and it helped. I think you could jump him, at 13 he is just getting into his prime. I could see lower level dressage in him. I think he could use more muscle, that's about it in my opinion. He is a cute boy =)

    lol actually his new pictures(last) are the oldest! Lol he was really hairy but you can't really see how skinny he was
    This is another photo they sent me..the previous owner had him off grain so when I got him he was pretty thin and still is thin

    I think he's lovely. But yeah looks like he needs a bit more muscle to him. Im sure he's got good potential.

    He is very thin...feed out hay, sugerbeet and fibre sure. That's the recipie I've found for wieght gain. He really needs condition and yeah, if you feed him up hell look lovely, he just looks quite a bit run down, ill post pics of my horse when I got him, and he's almost back to normal now, very shiny after that food I said!

    Looked like this, and when I trialed him he was like this

    That was when he was staying at my friends place, after I trialled him he went back to the old place for a little bit he came back like this, I didnt even know it was the same horse!



    Im still trying to get him back to his former self

    He really needs weight and muscle! I would get him on a really good complete feed plus hay. I wont ever judge the conformation of an underweight horse as the pics show it can be very misleading

    Thanks! I'll post photos up after a few months of riding and good eating.
    He just learned to crib off his stable buddy so that's another challenge.

    The first photos were taking recently with my cell phone so they don't do him justice while the last ones look good he was super skinny there just good "angles"
